WK Nowlan to go rolling for charity

WK Nowlan Real Estate Advisors has revealed plans for a 'Battle of the Bikes' contest next month in aid of Crumlin Children's Hospital.
The event will feature teams from some of Ireland's best known property and professional services companies competing in a "Rollapaluza" cycle challenge.
Rollapaluza is described as a new cycling event concept that allows teams to compete on a fixed rig whilst spectators and fellow competitors cheer them on as they compete to see who can be the fastest over a 500 metre sprint. Times to target include that of former Olympic cyclist, now turned National Hunt jockey, Victoria Pendleton who has clocked a time of just 22.8 seconds for the course.
This is the first corporate event of its kind in Ireland, with twenty teams battling it out at CHQ in Dublin's IFSC between 6.30 and 8.30pm on June 2.
All proceeds from the event, which costs €1,000 per team to enter, will be donated to CMRF Crumlin, the fundraising body for Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin.
WK Nowlan Real Estate Advisors managing director Killian O'Higgins commented: "This is a great way of raising money for a good cause whilst doing something innovative and different.
"We've had great support from our partners and clients for this event who will be shedding their suits for their lycra to help us raise money for Crumlin Children's Hospital."
